Developmental Effects of Trauma
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) affect 34.8 million children across socio-economic lines, putting them at higher risk for health, behavioral and learning problems.*
Exposure to trauma during the most critical developmental years of a child’s life can have a profound impact on a child’s success in their daily life. Complex trauma often results in delayed milestones that go undetected, and instead mask themselves as defiant, disrespectful, forgetful, and difficult behaviors. Shandy Clinic Thrive helps address your child’s social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development to help your child become the best they can be, despite the past they have faced.

- Individualized Therapy Sessions (Speech Occupational, & Physical Therapy)
